real winter

I am a fan of having 4 seasons in a year, not just 3 and a partial fourth. It definitely cools down for Georgia winters but when you have cold without the snow it kind of blows. I have been here in SLC for the week for work and I am LOVING THE SNOW! I couldn't wait to see it and as I flew into the valley last Thursday night it was a gorgeous site seeing a blanket of snow covering the city. I am all for TEAM SNOW.

39º to 76º

This is really what we wore today.

This weather is OUT OF CONTROL. We have record highs right now and I can't stand it. I miss the cold and the snow and the coats and beanies (the snow is rare but the rest is true). It is abnormally warm right now but luckily I am headed to Utah in a few days to get back to the REAL winter weather.

baby Jesus @ 2am

I was recently called into Primary as the Secretary and with that calling I am supposedly in charge of the Monthly Bulletin Boards. The procrastinator of projects that I am and working best at crunch time I started drawing these 2ft x 4ft images of The Nativity from a book I bought for 99cents at 11pm Saturday night. I finished up around 2am and ended up with this:

guitar hero amateur

While perusing Wal-Mart for some Christmas shopping we strolled through the electronics section and had ourselves a game of Guitar Hero. It was my first time and I was IN LOVE with it. Too bad it doesn't work with our hand-me-down Xbox from Steve's bro or I would be purchasing that game for Christmas!
